About Prince Rupert

On British Columbia’s wild and beautiful Northwest Coast, Prince Rupert is a vibrant town where nature, history, and personalities are larger than life.

Legendary sport fishing, exceptional wildlife viewing, attractions that bring the Coast’s ancient Aboriginal culture and pioneer heritage alive, and the urban pleasure of good restaurants, fascinating shops, and colourful neighborhoods make Prince Rupert the ideal choice for a family vacation, a corporate retreat, or a solo getaway.

Enroute to Alaska and Haida Gwaii (the Queen Charlotte Islands), Prince Rupert is easily accessible by air, rail, cruise ship, ferry, car or RV. This year, we invite you to discover our nature.
